Dill (anethum graveolens)

An annual herb, native to southern Europe and western Asia, belonging to the umbelliferae family. It grows to a height of 1.5 metres (if left unchecked, but will need staking for this height) and has fine aromatic feathery leaves. The seeds have a more aggressive flavour than the leaves. Dill can be grown in containers, or in the garden in a sunny position. They need to be sown at regular intervals to maintain a supply. Cutting promotes new growth. See 'Dill, Culinary uses'; 'Dill, Medical uses'
